Additional Details:
Pacific, class K4, No. 1361 waits at South Amboy, N3 for a train to the Jersey shore, August 4, 1954. Trains arrived from Penn Station, New York City with GGI electric locomotives to this point where the switch to steam was made. The switch is still made at this station, but now its from electric to diesel power. After being retired from service, 1361 was placed on display along the mainline at Horseshoe Curve near Altoona, Pa. in 1957. These pacific lomotives were the mainstay of fast passenger service for years before the last of the fleet spent their final years on the New York & Long Branch in commuter service. In September 1985, the Pacific was removed from the Curve and placed in the Railroaders Memorial Museum in Altoona before being taken to the Conrail Shops for overhaul. After thirty years, 1361 again turned a wheel under its own power on April 11, 1987 at 8:57 pm.
